The 2010 Kalgoorlie Cup carnival began in earnest on Sunday when Inarticulate ran down tearaway leader Stokehouse to win the Coolgardie Cup (1600m). The Cup is worth $100,000 and is sponsored by Yarradale Stud’s Ron Sayers through his company Ausdrill.
Inarticulate (7g Enforcer – Don’t Speak by Don’t Say Halo) has been a great money-spinner for owner Renee Durrant and her brother Adam. The gelding has raced 25 times for 11 wins including the Listed Carbine Club Stakes at Ascot for earnings over $350,000.
Adam Durrant trained the 2009 Coolgardie Cup winner Reverend Lovejoy (Love A Dane) and he went on the win the Boulder Cup before transferring east to David Hayes.
Inarticulate’s sire Enforcer (Luskin Star) is a half-brother to G1 winners Referral, Shogun Lodge and Singing The Blues. He was originally based in WA at Fernville Stud but was purchased by NSW breeder Peter Darley to stand at Tenterfield. His books have since dropped to single figures.
Inarticulate’s dam Don’t Speak was bred in South Australia by Harry Perks. Retired without racing, she ended up in Perth and changed hands for just $600 at a Belmont Sale in 2001. She foaled the Pinjarra winner Regal Whisper (Royal Abjar) and Inarticulate but died aged 12 in 2007.
The Durrants will give Inarticulate the chance emulate Reverend Lovejoy in the $110,000 Boulder Cup at Kalgoorlie on September 12.
